Live, Love...Lacoste

“It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine…it’s summertime!”
Kenny Chesney

That’s right, my loves, summertime is fast approaching, which means we are in dire need of sassy shoes that will keep our perfectly-pedicured paws feeling cool and looking chic as the temperatures rise. Pumps, trainers, and espadrilles are a few of my favorite things; and luckily these are the precise styles that have taken over the runways, offering the savvy stylista a fabulous selection of wares to choose from that are equal parts fashion-forward, comfortable, and positively essential for lazy summer days – especially when they come from respected brands like Lacoste!

Though I love the look of leather boots with cutoff denim shorts, I live in an area where the temperatures are known to slip over 100* during the summer season, so they’re an absolute no-no. And while I’m a huge fan of the affordability of flip flops, my toes have experienced too many painful encounters with people wearing heavy shoes, so I avoid these, as well. Pumps, trainers, and espadrilles are my saving grace, as they allow your feet to breathe even when encased in material; offer optimal protection from wayward walkers and shopping carts; and are affordable enough to indulge in a few different pairs, so that you can switch up your style from day to night.

My new favorite summertime go-to is Lacoste. I’ve always been a fan of the green alligator; but only just learned that, aside from the standard fare of polos and perfumes, Lacoste is behind the creation of a wide array of super cute, high-quality summer classics of the footwear variety – from slip-on trainers, to nautical-esque ballet pumps (flats), and charming wedge plimsolls; perfect for pairing with bikinis to board shorts, and flirty frocks to denim minis. They are the epitome of effortless elegance; and the very forms of footwear that will accompany me through all sorts of unexpected summer fun in the coming months!

Are you a fan of Lacoste footwear? What will you be wearing on your feet for the summer months?


Fashionably yours!

I'm going to try to wear high heeled sandals or ballet flats this summer, when I'm not trying to learn how to roller skate.
